We poked and prodded, stopping short of threatening violence - but we just couldn't get the co-op details out of THQ for their upcoming action game, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Finally, mere days before release, we've got the official details of the mode.
The online only survival mode is called Exterminatus, putting a squad of four Space Marines against Orks and other baddies in a violent score based fight to the death. There are three classes to choose from: the Tactical Marine, Devastator or Assault Marine and players will be able to utilize weapons and perks available to those classes from both co-op and multiplayer versus modes.
There appears to be two co-op maps, or scenarios as the press release states. Assault on Hab Center Andreas and Escape From Kalkys Facility will be your battleground. While two maps seem pretty slim pickens, the press release states there will be dynamic objectives, scoring modifiers and leaderboards to add replayability.
Exterminatus will be available as DLC in October and will be free to all owners of Warhammer 40k: Space Marine. We've got the first screenshots of it in action right below.
